Classes for 2017

Classes in 2016 thrived and as such I have created several new classes into our timetable in order to allow more space for new enrolments and to keep class sizes capped. Students are not placed in classes based primarily on their age, but experience, ability and friends are important factors that can determine what class is best suited for them.

In 2017 we are excited to announce that we have completely restructured our programs to allow students to learn at a consistent pace whilst still delivering a vibrant, fun and nurturing dance experience that celebrates every child’s achievements. This program has been specifically designed to allow a beautiful transition into the next level age program, as your child progresses through their dancing.

TWINKLE TOES GROUP

TWINKLE TOES JAZZ: These classes are fun and energetic and allow your little one to develop their ear for music and their feet for dancing. Incorporating basic jazz movement, coordination and singing and drama to familiar songs, this is the perfect class to get your child started in dancing.

TWINKLE TOES BALLET: These classes are a beautiful opportunity for your little one to learn the beginnings of basic ballet technique and terminology, whilst also allowing them to go on a magical journey of smiles, twirls and leaps. These classes still incorporate the same energy and fun as our Jazz lessons, but are designed with our little princes and princesses in mind!

TWINKLE TOES HIP HOP: A new and exciting class in 2017, this class gives your children a perfect introduction to modern moves and techniques. Sharing the same upbeat nature as our Jazz classes, Hip Hop also uses trendy and funky music where dancers can learn groovy and hip moves.

TOPAZ & TURQUOISE GROUPS

JAZZ: Modern and upbeat, this class is full of fun and laughs and is a great way to stay active while also making new friends. In this age level, students learn the basic fundamentals of Jazz and start to develop their own creative and independent thinking.

HIP HOP: These classes focus on introducing students to modern and urban style dance technique, whilst also focusing on accented movement, isolations and cool tricks. These classes run to trendy and hip music whilst still being fun and age appropriate.

BALLET: Ballet forms the basis of all dance technique and has a large focus on body placement, posture and performance quality. Although classes are run in a fun and nurturing environment and students do not sit for exams, the classes are still taught from a set syllabus allowing students to learn the correct technique and terminology.

TAP: This style is all about sounds and rhythm and as such a large focus is placed on timing and musicality, helping to develop their ear for music. At this level the basic fundamentals of tap are taught incorporating a well-rounded warm-up, barre work and combinations to develop the whole dancer.

CHEERLEADING/TUMBLING: This class focuses on introducing students to basic tumbling and stunt work, whilst also incorporating pom poms, tricks and floor work.

“Every student in our Jigsaw Family is a gem and is precious. Within each of the age groups, a specialised program has been developed to allow students to continually improve in technique, coordination and choreography. Each of our classes run off a themed lesson plan to allow students to learn in a fun and creative environment, giving opportunity to develop the ‘whole child’ where confidence, self esteem and friendships are a key factor.”
